    From one kid to the world, in a time of mourning.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     sckales says he expected that his nine-year-old daughter would eventually hear of the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, so he and his wife decided to tell her themselves. 'She was noticeably sad, and went into her room to do her homework, and eventually came out with those cards. I thought it was so touching especially because she is around the same age of those kids,' he said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    My daughter deals with the news of the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting. Today, I dropped off my daughter at school, and hugged her when I got home, but some will never do that again. Our thoughts and prayers to them all. How do we explain something to our children that we don't understand ourselves.
